Region 4 Tribal Program
The EPA Region 4 Tribal Program works with the six federally recognized tribes in the southeast to protect the human health and environment in Indian country. We work government-to-government with Region 4 tribes to develop, implement and support tribal environmental programs consistent with EPA’s authorities, the federal trust responsibility and EPA’s 1984 Indian Policy.
